The four-state Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission will hold its fourth 2012 quarterly meeting on November 9 in Kingsland, GA. The meeting will begin at 10 a.m., at O. F. Edwards North Center Complex, 531 North Lee St. The public is invited.
Highlights will include updates on the Commission’s Public Comment Report for the recently released Management Plan; preparation to begin program implementation and receiving and reviewing submissions of Partnership, Partner Site, and Stakeholder applications; executive staff; and establishment of a fiscal arm.
“The management plan has been submitted to the National Park Service for review, with the expectation that in the coming weeks it will be forwarded to the U.S. Secretary of the Interior for approval,” said Chairman Ronald Daise. “With hopes that the Management Plan will be approved, the Commission is working diligently to ensure we will be able to implement the initial, mid-term, and long-range actions that have been identified. Effective partnerships and financial donations will be the key to the Corridor’s ultimate success.”
Comments from the Management Plan’s Public Comment Period, July 18 – August 17, 2012, are posted on the Corridor’s website, www.gullahgeecheecorridor.org, and the PEPC (National Park Service Planning, Environment and Public Comment) Web site: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/guge.
